Hello,
Can anyone please help me with an appealing format, I was pressured and told I will be kicked out of the program because I said am not fit to write an exam, I requested a new date because the time was impromptu. Also, I did say that the material was too voluminous and can not cover it within the time frame of the exam. I was sent an email on the 17th to write the exam on the 28th. The only advice I got was to apply for extenuating circumstances which the deadline to apply was the 11th of September and the email was communicated to me on the 2nd of October. so I was not properly advised or supported by the university on what I should do or how to seek support if I was not ready for an exam rather was only told to discontinue.

Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

Hello,

You seem to be seeking to blame the univesity because you hadn't properly aquainted yourself with the deadlines for applying for serious adverse circumstances. From what I can see, these dates are easily obtained. It was your responsibility to apply by the deadline: not the university's responsibility to baby you into making sure you made your deadline.

Your OP seems to contain no concrete grounds to appeal anything:

Also, I did say that the material was too voluminous and can not cover it within the time frame of the exam
Why do you think this is a valid reason for anything, given that all students had the same amount of work to cover and you were no different from any other examination candidate?

I had been on placement on a night shift prior to the second attempt, the EC deadline was communicated back to me on the 2nd of October with a deadline of 11th September while the exam was to be on the 28th, and I got the notice of the exam on the 17th of September and 18th October. so I had already missed the deadline for my faculty.
Yes, it is the same workload but we all are different and can not process information at the same level, some people are ok for a night revision while some need a month or more to understand and process their information.
